Located not far from Lisbon, in the Alc;cer do Sal castle. At this site, with 5000 years of History, that go back to the later Neolithic period, we come across a variety of important cultural remains, such as Phoenician, Arab or even Roman. This Pousada overlooks the river Sado, which runs through a vast green valley.
Alcácer do Sal was conquered by many different peoples. Before the Roman occupation it was called Eviom and had trade with the Mediterranean countries. The Romans called it Salatia Urbs Imperatoria, bearing the coin stamp and with the same rights as the cities of Antigo Lácio. Alcácer also was capital city of the Visigothic municipality, it was dominated by the Arabs at the end of the 8th century and then became one of the most important trade cities in the peninsula. It was conquered by the Vikings at the end of the 10th century.
D. Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, tried to conquer it in 1158, but it only became a Portuguese village in 1217 with King Afonso II. King Manuel I married Princess D. Maria (the Spanish Catholic King's daughter), in Alcácer do Sal in 1500. By this time, the castle built by the Arabs had no military purpose any longer, and so became a Carmelita de Aracelli convent during the 16th century. This Pousada is set in its thousand year old castle overlooking the valley where cork, rice and pine-nuts are produced.
There are 33 Rooms and 3 Suites.The rooms have the following equipment:
The restaurant of the Pousada D. Afonso II, decorated with modern elements, surrounded by a mystic ambiance, offers fantastic meals. Most of the gastronomy has its origins in the river of the city of Alcácer. The restaurant has capacity for 140 people. The Pousada has the ability to organize cocktails and banquets.
